    DA VINCI’S DEMONS?????

  • AJ

    OMG… Disney is doing HORRIBLE on Friday nights….

  • Seth

    Nobody watches Da Flopi’s Demons

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Sara Bibel

    DaVinci’s fell out of the top 100. If we get data for the show, I will post it.

  • samurai99

    Yep, Instant renewal of Da Vinci’s Demon’s was a bad move. People make fun of Girls initial ratings, but they weren’t this bad.

  • ryan

    starz is not hbo either

  • The End

    @samurai99

    They had no choice but to renew it early though. The finished production of Season 1 ages ago.

    In hindsight, they should of hung on for a few weeks and cancelled once the ratings went south.

    That being said, they’ve hired two notable Marvel comic book writers to pen some episodes for next season.

    Anyway, I kinda like this show.

  • trevor

    Actually Disney did very well the last time they had originals on Friday but yes, THIS Friday the numbers are down. Even JESSIE was below 3 million viewers.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Since we don’t have Saturday cable ratings, I’ll mention here that I’m looking forward to Dame Diana Rigg on the next Doctor Who. With her on GOT, she’s working a lot these days. I wasn’t that interested in this week’s episode, but I am curious as to who Clara turns out to be since Who seems not to know.

    Also, the Orphan Black episode was excellent. Best part was Sarah’s ex running into Allison and thinking she was Sarah – she Maced him – and then tased him for good measure. :-) This show is really good, mostly due to terrific acting on Tatiana Maslany’s part. She plays four different characters – including one character impersonating another dead character – so convincingly you’d think they are four different actors.

    @AJ Disney usually does very well on Fridays. Just so happens that this week wasn’t very strong for them.

  • Ram510

    Wow Yes Dear did really well for 4am

  • Jon23812

    @AJ, you mean “Disney did horrible THIS Friday night”

  • Bryan

    Sons of Guns is incredibly fake. I’ve seen better acting in pro wrestling promos.

  • Bryan

    That’s a ton people watching Full House at six in the morning.

  • poweranimals

    What did Fish Hooks get?

  • Amy

    Fish Hooks (9:30, 30 Minutes) – Disney
    2.039 million viewers, #8; 0.351 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #17

  • disneynick101

    Disney and nick have been slipping a lot lately–I wonder why

  • silvit

    @Bryan

    Everything you see on tv is fake. Just saying.

  • Binaldi

    I think that this is the final year of this Disney and Nickelodeon generation everyone loved the raven and Lizzie generation then the Miley Selena and demi generation, now I think the Jessie shake it up and even good luck Charlie generation is over everyone is looking for something g New, just like Nickelodeon everyone love the icarly big time rush and victorious generation, but it looks like everyone wants to watch something fresh and new people want to watch gravity falls and wonder overt yonder not fish hook and even phineas and ferb which I love and no one watches big time rush abhorrence though that’s the only Nick show I watch and Wendell, this generation of kids tv is done

  • AJ

    @Jon23812, @Kaylie, @Trevor:

    Yeah, sorry, I didn’t mean it in a bad way. Usually Disney originals do pretty well on Friday’s, it’s just that the ratings have been slipping, especially for A.N.T. Farm. I hope it’s better next week. I also hope Good Luck Charlie made a least 4 million… :)
